3143Re: Pittsburgh Comicon 2013 Good or Bad?
- Sep 25, 2012I don't see any problem with moving it. You can't really blame it on "other shows" due to the fact that the Boston show last year was a week before the Pittsburgh show which is probably one of the reasons we missed out on some guests. But as for the money issue, it gives you an extra 4 months to save for the show. No matter when the Pittsburgh show is scheduled people will have a problem with it, whether it be the show to close to other shows attended, money, and guests. You just have to choose which one you will enjoy most. If they moved it to December, people will complain its too close to Xmas (or Chanukah), move it to July it will be too hot, move it back to April and you have other Cons at the same time or a week before/after that others attend. Pittsburgh Comicon is doing the best they can with the time they have. Hell, they can either have it in Sept. or just cancel it all-together and disappoint a lot of people.
This is the only show I attend due to my job. I would love to attend NYCC or SDCC or any of the super-large shows, but this is the one I have attended going on 8 years now. I am kind of disappointed that I will miss a Steelers game that Sunday (hopefully will be the bye week) but I also missed the Washington Capitals Playoff games while the show was going on last year. But we all must make sacrifices.

As james stated people have just started semesters again so limited funds to enjoy yourself, and dragoncon is a last hurrah in that sense.
